Teacher Corner: Topic of the Month
(A Webquest to Inspire Good People Through
the Exploration of Ancient Greek Mythology)
is a sample of what you will find:
I believe that the answer to our difficult question "what does it mean to be a good person?" lies hidden in Ancient Greek myths. The Ancient Greeks had a society where they were free to think for themselves, openly discuss their ideas, and express their opinions. And they did think deeply about many questions and dilemmas that they were facing. The greatest of the thinkers were called philosophers, which means "Lovers of Knowledge."
The ideas of these philosophers were so respected that they influenced the thoughts and actions of many of the Ancient Greeks. The Ancient Greeks took these ideas and blended them with fictional events to create the stories that we call myths. Myths are action packed adventures of heroes who must courageously overcome evil. Many of these myths explain basic truths about life and nature including what it means to be a good person.
This sounds great! Take me to Explorations so I can get started!

Books That Every Teacher Must Have
Great Greek Books
Elementary teachers and parents can locate great books for kids on the Ancient Greece. Annotated bibliographies, links to Amazon.com, and easy access to local libraries make it a cinch to find children's literature on Ancient Greece.. Check Out our top ten choices or click here to see our complete annotated bibliography. Let us know what you think. Do you have online resources that be added to this list?
Sometimes it seems that no matter how hard we teachers try, we end up trapped in our own classroom creating our own lesson plans. The Internet is revolutionizing teaching and brining us into the age of “We Is Smarter Than Me!” The Teachers Corner: Topic of the Month utilizes the Internet to create an open forum where teachers can share their ideas and lesson plan on the topic of the month. Would you like to submit your ideas to be considered for publication in iwebquest.com’s Webquest Newsletter for the upcoming month? Please e-mail your ideas or lesson plans to email@example.com. with the words “Teacher’s Corner: Topic of the Month” in the subject box.
Responsible Use Policy
Acceptable Use Policies are widely used to ensure our children's safety and productivety while they use the Internet. Is this enough? The teaching staff at iwebquest.com suggest that Acceptable Use Policies are not enough!
We propose that in order to make progress forward we must move together to create a Responsible Use Policy. We must teach students proven Internet Safety Techniques, strategies to choose good websites, and tips and tricks to avoid the advertising that is everywhere on the Internet.
Send us your teacher proven ideas (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that together we can make a Responsible Use Policy that can ensure safe and productive use of the Internet by all our students.
Wow! Each month, thousands of students participate in the activities that are on our Webquests. This month students will be throwing a Ancient Greece Myth Festival. Send us your digital images from your activity to email@example.com to have your pictures posted in our Mt. Olympus Mythtelling Hall of Fame. We will link to all of your images but we will use the rubrics that you can find on the Webquest to chose the top three student images. These will be placed into a special winner’s circle.
Teachers, parents, and students proceed to Explorations (A Webquest to Inspire Good People Through the Exploration of Ancient Greek Mythology) .
